I have been looking for an exciting yet not so bright colored purse for awhile. When I saw this Rebeca Minkoff "Mini 5-Zip" at the New York Century 21, I immediately fell in love! Century 21 has been my new favorite place to shop since I moved to New York last winter. I can easily find great designer pieces at a lower price. For this outfit, my orange bag helped to brighten up the dark colors of my outfit. I wore this for a weekend tour in Willamsburg. The jean jacket gives the whole look a urban, street feel.

Well, well, it is time to finally sit down and share all my wedding adventures with you guys. Let's start with my bridal shower! I didn't grow up in the U.S.A. and the concept of a bridal shower was totally new to me. I had no idea what a bridal shower was until I had one. My lovely mother-in-law and sisters-in-law hosted this whole beautiful event. When I walked into the venue at Longfellows hotel, I was completely shocked by everything they did for me. I couldn't stop saying "wow" when I saw all the details that filled the room with love. I spent a great time with all the wonderful guests, and I will never forget the day for the rest of my life.

This summer has been a action packed summer for me. The wedding, a new job, both of my parents visiting me in New York... I have been so overwhelmed with everything but also spending a long wonderful time with the people who love me the most in the world. Everything has finally settled down right now, I have a chance to update my website and keep working on my second career as a blogger. I have so much great news, experiences, photos, and places I discovered in NYC that I wanted to share with you and I can't wait to share with you in the near future!

Hey guys! I'm so sorry that I haven't posted recently, I have been overwhelmed with my new job and the wedding plans. There are so many great things that have happened in NYC since summer began! NYC Design Week started in the middle of May and it has always been my favorite event of the year as a practicing designer. I saw a lot of old friends and professors from school, as well as seeing so many great designs from professionals that come from all around the world. Wanted Design is one of my favorite design shows during the week. There are a lot of independent designers, companies, and schools displaying new work in a unique and cool location. Here are some of my favorites:
